, that's coming from rupert murdoch's "wall street journal." usually i don't agree with those guys. plus a new poll shows president obama's approval rating is up five points this month. 49% approve of 9 job he's doing. watch house republicans ignore democrats who have asked to bring the bill to the floor. >> the house stand adjourn until 10:00 a.m. on friday -- >> mr. speaker -- >> mr. speaker! >> i regret that the republicans who say they're here to work s. we were on the floor to do our work. and they walked out. >> the country's paying attention to this fight, and republicans could be in big trouble. joining me now is bill press, host of "the bill press show" on sirius/xm radio, and ryan grm, washington bureau chive for the "the huffington post." ryan, how much of an impact will this fight have on 2012? >> you know, i think that people are underestimating how much impact this will have. there are millions of people who, for a variety of reasons, are watching this extremely closely, much more closely than people think, first whoever is collecting unemployment benefits is watching this
